An environmental disaster has been unfolding in Russian-occupied Crimea as residents face consequences of the lack of water on the peninsula.
In particular, photos showing the disaster in annexed Crimea, where the Simferopol reservoir is disappearing, were posted on social networks by blogger RoksolanaToday&Crimea25% (@KrimRT) on June 3.
The dry soil is now seen where there used to be a water-storage basin.
"The Simferopol reservoir is now a puddle," reads the post.
Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Nariman Dzhelalov earlier said that there was an acute shortage of drinking water in the major cities of Russia-annexed Crimea, namely Sevastopol and Simferopol.
